HDTV Buying Tips:
1. Not all digital TV''s are HDTV sets. Make sure you are buying an HDTV set.
2.. The viewing screen size area of Wide screen HDTV set is smaller then the viewing screen of a regular TV. Widescreen is meant for a 16:9 Aspect Viewing Picture for HDTV broadcasts while Regular TV sets have 4:3 Aspect for non-HDTV broadcasts. As such the viewing area for say a 26" wide screen HDTV is much smaller then a 26" regular TV set so if you want the equivilent viewing area you should buy something like a 32" Wide screen HDTV. The bottom line is if you are buying a wide screen hdtv remember that to get the equivalent viewing area of your regular tv your hdtv should be of a bigger size.
